Brooks Pierce partner Dan Smith has been named chair of the Financial Asset Development Committee for the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD). His term began Jan. 1.
As chair of the committee, Smith helps coordinate the NCCDD’s efforts to promote initiatives that increase the financial security of individuals with intellectual or other developmental disabilities (I/DD) through asset development, one of three core goals of the NCCDD’s current five-year plan. Additionally, Smith now serves on NCCDD’s Executive Committee.
The NCCDD is a 40-member council composed of individuals with I/DD, their family members and state legislators, officials and service providers. The council meets quarterly and oversees implementation of the provisions of the federal Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000 and assures the council is a member-driven, effective, efficient organization.
